Preton, a provider of printing cost reduction software, has signed a distribution agreement with IT distributor SYNNEX Corporation. As part of the distribution agreement, SYNNEX is providing Preton’s PretonSaver software through its own PRINTSolv platform that the company makes available to managed print service (MPS) providers across the United States and Canada.
PretonSaver is a print management application that gathers and provides detailed print usage data for optimizing organizational printing activities. PretonSaver collects user-focused reporting data from all locally connected and network printers, and includes print rules with policy enforcement capabilities.
By delivering these PretonSaver capabilities with PRINTSolv, MPS providers using PRINTSolv can provide their customers with a more complete view of the printing environment and be in the position to offer better solutions for optimizing printing activities.
“Today more than ever, MPS providers must offer identifiable value adds to distinguish their MPS programs in an increasingly competitive and commoditized market,” says Tim Bohn, vice president of North American operations at Preton. “Together with SYNNEX and its PRINTSolv platform, we are delivering MPS providers tangible, competitive advantages that give their customers a much more complete view of their printing habits, including user, application, and locally connected device print tracking as well as print rules to proactively manage user printing behaviors. This provides significant value add to customers and helps dealers differentiate their MPS offerings.”
